was true to size for me.

Does that mean when shoe trees are in the shoes, the laces should be loose?

My left foot is 7D, and right foot is 6E. I wear 7D in strands. 7D longbranch (grey also!) fits well with thicker socks. The insole moulds to your foot, it is the most comfortable boots I've tried! Better than wearing double socks and double insoles during my time in the army.

The AE outlet stores always put brown and other colors on sale right after Christmas.  Get on the mailing list.

Hoping some people will weigh in: With the Memorial Day sale, Patriots are too good of a price to not pick up. Can't decide between brown and merlot. I normally prefer burgundy shoes because I wear charcoal and navy suits and enjoy the versatility burgundy offers over brown. However, these will probably be worn mostly with jeans in a casual environment.

Any thoughts? I noticed the merlots have v-tread and not sure if that should be a deterrent or not.

That's not what AE was going for: "Slightly elongated profile with a square toe shape for a more euro look."

My wardrobe is neither fashion forward nor conservative--more retro-edgy (think BB's new Gatsby line).  So while I expect that most AE aficionados will disagree with my wife, I wonder whether this ought to be my mainstay (3 days a week) shoe for the foreseeable future.  Thoughts?

Also, thoughts on wearing this (walnut) color with a navy suit?

Yes, walnut and navy is killer. Also think about getting the Manistee belt in walnut from AE to match.

After four straight Tuesdays of snow, finally had enough break in the weather to wear the Townley's for the first time. Thanks to jvc44 for the heads up, and also to tampatravel as it was his post on remaining sizes that caused an impulse purchase.

Thanks for the props! It was jvc44 who started this mess. It's amazing how a stranger on a forum can help you part with $300! smile.gif

 


I'm still wearing mine around the house - breaking them in...I haven't worn them out yet. They're making their maiden voyage next week. I did buy the Alden Leather Defender to put on them. That goes on cloudy and polishes up great. I picked some up in San Fran at the Alden store...which is a must stop if you're in town. It's literally a block away from the AE store too.

I store my shoes with shoe trees inserted and with the shoes tied. I don't sinch them down but I tie them as if they were on my feet. Not overly tight but not just flopping around either.

I wear a 9D, so I'm just passing this along to the 12 D or 12.5D people out there. Remember the common wisdom is to size down 1/2 size for the kenilworth from your regular 5 last size.  So these might work better for 12.5D people.

I am looking for that exact combination :/

I use the MacMethod - so really just a wipedown with a damp cloth and a brushing. Every 5-6 wears I use some venetian shoe cream to condition and bring back the shine. I find that my AE shell blooms much more than my Alden shell, so the upkeep is a bit more labor intensive
